With winter on the way, many office managers may be considering shutting off their comfort conditioning systems. However, it is crucial to have air conditioning equipment in good operating order all year, especially during the winter. By taking steps to protect your air conditioning equipment, you can be sure that it will be ready for use again in the spring.
Follow this helpful checklist so you can ensure that you are prepared for winter.
- Take care of your filters
Many people make the mistake of not cleaning and maintaining their filters throughout the winter months. Even if you don’t use your air conditioner, you should clean the filters every three months.
Your air conditioning coils and coil fins require the same care and attention to keep their heat absorption capacities and the flow of air movement throughout your unit going.
- Clean your condensate drains
Your air conditioner heat pump requires regular maintenance, and if not properly cared for, its condensate drains can quickly become clogged. Well-maintained condensate drains are important for decreasing humidity throughout an air-conditioned workplace. If condensate drains are not cleaned on a regular basis, they can get clogged and cause water leaks.
- Clear away the dust and dirt
Colder season debris may be a big issue for buildings that employ outdoor condensers. Falling autumn leaves are the most prevalent offenders, making outdoor maintenance a vital component of winter preparations. Remove any seasonal dirt and trash, and trim any branches and leaves.
